Francis Ford Coppola bringing “Twixt” to Comic-Con

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Comic-Con attendees were surprised to hear that pedigreed director Steven Soderbergh would be making the trek to the annual comic, sci-fi and superhero convention. This news should downright shock them.

Francis Ford Coppola will be on hand to present portions of his upcoming film “Twixt” at a panel discussion on Saturday, July 23 in the iconic Hall H. Coppola’s film stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, and Ben Chaplin in a pictures he describes as “one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career.”

Even better, Coppola says his film will incorporate live music by acclaimed independent performance artist Dan Deacon, as well as 2-D and 3-D visual elements.

From the release:

Like his most recent films, TWIXT follows three self-imposed mandates that Coppola requires in all of his new work: be his own original story and screenplay, have some personal element, and be self-financed. This particular story came to Coppola during a vivid dream he had while on a trip to Istanbul and is inspired by the writings of Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The film also brings Coppola back to his horror roots that began during his apprenticeship with Roger Corman.

On attending Comic-Con, Coppola says, “I fondly recall meeting the Comic-Con audience years ago when I brought them my ‘Dracula’ film. That experience made me not want to miss this chance to return with ‘Twixt.’”
